India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) on Wednesday said it is working hard to strengthen the electronics manufacturing capability of India by expanding the Chandigarh-based fab facility owned by government of India.
The association has already submitted a memorandum in this regard to the government, IESA Chairman Ashwini K Aggarwal said.
Aggarwal said the Chandigarh facility’s capability is confined to certain areas. “We want the government to make some framework policy so that its capacity expansion is expedited on war-footing and it will help India to meet its hardware requirement in the electronics and semiconductor area,” he said.
IESA is also planning to come up with a common manufacturing facility to help startups and other companies in their go to market strategy. According to Deccan Herald, Aggrawal said that they have already acquired eight acre land in Noida for this project which will be funded by World Bank and Central government.
The association chairman also said the detailed project report (DPR) for the facility has been prepared and the work is underway. The event showcased a 100% growth in the 2nd edition of the Start-up IoT Directory, launched with IoT Forum. The Directory includes 900 start-ups working in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) across the nation. It has been compiled with support from Nasscom, IoT CoE, IIT Mumbai, SINE, IKP EDEN, Revxx, IoTBLR,T-Hub, Forge and Excubator.
